I have owned it for a year. It doesn't really work well and I cannot recommend it to you for the following reasons:

1. It's rubber belt driven. The electric motor turns the rubber belt which then turns the snow scraper. You can sometimes smell burning rubber and you can tell it won't last long. I already decided I won't replace the belt and will probably throw this out when it breaks one day.

2. If there are many feet of snow, you must make a half dozen passes with it to get down to the bottom of the sidewalk/driveway.

3. There's usually a thin layer of ice/snow on the driveway/sidewalk which it can't pickup and you must use a shovel to scrape it off. Kind of defeats the purpose of an electric snow blower.

4. When the cord freezes in the winter, it is stiff and does not move around easily when using this outside. I know you guys will blame my 100 ft cord, but I am simply recommending a CORDLESS snow blower which uses a battery, or even a gas powered one. I use corded lawn mowers with no problems (never mowed the cord accidentally) but it's a bad decision to build a corded snow blower

Comments on issue #4:

I've read multiple posts on SlickDeals and Amazon and have learned that not using the proper gauge/length power cord will not only make a snow blower under-powered, but can damage the motor as well. So you will have to get a cord that meets the power demands of the blower which likely means a 12-gauge cord that can deliver 1875 Watts for a decent blower. The other issue is that normal outdoor cords stiffen up in the cold (I see a ton of jokes here), then deliver less power and don't flex as well. This is easily resolved with a COLD-WEATHER cord which remains flexible even in extreme cold.

The problem is that such cords are expensive. Amazon has a popular 12-gauge 100-ft cord that sells for about $80. This, however, defeats a lot of the savings for many of us Slickdealers and makes a battery-powered look more attractive (ASSUMING you already have a compatible battery). Of course, if you already have a highly-rated cold-weather cord, this may be more attractive to you.

Just my thoughts

The one in Amazon is 2600502. The one listed in the post is 2600202. So I assume they are different models?

I have an older version of this one and it has worked well. I live west of Chicago (about 30 miles) so winter storms can be difficult. This is the type of blower that you used during and after a storm; don't wait until it all stops.

Good deal. Lowes sells this for $179.

https://www.lowes.com/pd/Greenwor...r/50223265

I bought a returned one from Lowes a couple of years back for cheap...works well. The weak spot is the directional chute. I use mine for clearing my front deck.

Alright, I'm just going to say it. The only good reason there is to get a snow blower this small is if you are a senior citizen or disabled or something. If your area gets so little snow that this is all you'd "need" to clear the snow, most people here should probably should just buy a shovel.

Funny because I live in Chicago and lived in Elmhurst area until recently moving towards the north west suburbs.

Electric snowblower? I grew up in Nebraska. The ONLY way I would ever consider moving back is having an electric/radiant heating system installed in a new driveway.
